Whilst sheep, cattle, chickens and pigs are the bread and butter of Australia’s livestock production, there are a host of other unique livestock sectors across the country that contribute to the economy and require good on-farm biosecurity and emergency animal disease preparedness too.
On this page, you will find the tools to implement the simple, everyday biosecurity practices to protect the health of your livestock, limit production losses and help maintain market access for your industry.
Animal Health Australia has teamed up with Charles Sturt University to develop biosecurity resources and emergency animal disease preparedness information for new and emerging livestock industries including emu, turkey, dairy sheep, buffalo, deer and harvesting industries including rangeland goats and kangaroos.
The project, which was being funded by Agrifutures Australia, commenced with research undertaken by the university to determine attitudes to, and awareness of, biosecurity and emergency animal disease preparedness.
Resources and information are being developed for each of the new and emerging industry sectors and placed on this webpage. Scroll down to see what resources are available for the following industries:
Download and print these fact sheets to inform staff and others working on your property about the importance of biosecurity for your industry. You can also download the posters, print them and place them in and around your property to remind staff and visitors about the importance of biosecurity.
